Away back, when you were a little

An exchange gives our sentiments
when it says: "We want to give all the
news possible to obtain in our own
proper bail wick. But there are many
things we do not like to publish which
will frequently come up as news which
cannot be left out of our columns. In
police matters, for instance, the public
expects the news, and we shall endeavor
to give these items as they occur, Avith
out discrimination. Xo man loses his
moral sense or his moral responsibility
by becoming the editor or the publisher
of a newspaper, and we do not expect
or intend to pander to any public sen
timent which we deem corrupt. Wc
intend to try and giA-e our patrons the
news, but we also intend to publish a
clean paper, one in which no man Avill
lind anything improper for any of his
family to read.
